Quinoa Growing Information

Quinoa is best grown in a well-drained, loamy soil in full sun.

Young leaves can be added to salads or older ones steamed or stir- fried, but it is the seeds  that you really want.

Harvest them when they have changed from green to off-white.

Dry them off over a few days, rinse until water runs clear and then allow to dry out completely before storing in an airtight container.
